|Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day philosophy is to make straightforward, honest cleaners that smell good and work like the dickens on dirt. All of their cleaning products are made with natural essential oils, are biodegradable and packaged in recyclable materials, and they never test on animals.
Are Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products free of chemicals and preservatives? Honestly, "chemical-free" is an impossible claim to make. Water is a chemical, air is a chemical, essential oils are chemicals and much of the world as we know it is a configuration of various carbon chains.
Mrs. Myers wants their products to be at their optimum freshness and safety throughout their useful lifetime, so they use a minimal amount of synthetic preservatives to accomplish this- in fact, less than one percent. Contact with contaminated product could be much more harmful than exposure to low levels of preservatives.
Their fragrance compositions use a combination of natural essential oils and safe synthetic ingredients. This allows for the most pleasing, quality, and intriguing scents- inspired by the garden - that you'll want to use again and again. This approach provides consistent performance, quality, and safety in every bottle. All fragrances are phthalate-free.
